Avatar: The Last Airbender

Why Avatar: The Last Airbender Was Such a Phenomenon

Aired on February 21, 2005, Avatar: The Last Airbender enraptured children across the world, creating an immersive world that spellbound hundreds of thousands. Even now, as many of the original viewers are teenagers and young adults, they are still charmed by this animated tv series and its world, demonstrating that Avatar: The Last Airbender is one of the few shows created for children that can still enchant others at different ages and doesn't make the original viewers cringe and wonder how they ever watched that show.

Rated at a 97% by Google users, 9.2/10 by IMDb, and 4/5 by Common Sense media, Avatar: The Last Airbender's popularity is real. Another attestment to Avatar: The Last Airbender being so amazing is the fact it has had crummy sequels and li- (SHHH! We don't talk about the live action remakes...). Along with teaching children lessons and morals to make hard choices that may seem not beneficial for them in the short term, Avatar: The Last Airbender is also extremely entertaining, with strong characters that feel real, like people walking around in the real world. The end of this series (SPOILER ALERT: FROM NOW ON, THE REST OF THIS PAGE WILL CONTAIN SPOILERS FOR THE Avatar: The Last Airbender SERIES!) may seem disappointing, but it does teach valuable lessons of thinking outside the box, refusing to accept the choices others give to you, and staying loyal to morals.
